A Little Fantasy



Imagine that in that pretty tree at the curve of the stream, there lives a wee fairy. And this wee fairy grants WISHES.

Here is my wish (yes, after world peace, etc., etc.):

24 hours child free.

This is what I would do:

6:00AM to 8:30AM - Continue sleeping. When I wake up, the house is clean and there is not a bit of laundry to be seen. Thank's Wee Fairy.

8:30AM - snuggle with Geoff and a book and a bottomless cup of coffee on the front porch (um, it is a fantasy, so instead of the blue fold-up stadium chair on the front porch, there is a big wicker sofa with very soft fluffy pillows.)

10:30AM - make some jewelry

12:30PM - SLOWLY eat a tomato and basil sandwich on the patio with Geoff while enjoying the sights and sounds of our weed-free flower garden (Fairy, really, you have gone too far!)

1:00PM - Short hike along the Susquehanna River with Geoff

2:30PM - Browse Barnes and Noble (Geoff is there, too, but in the music section)

6:00PM - Dinner with Geoff at a restaurant that serves freshly, artfully prepared food, where one is encouraged to linger and have conversation

8:30PM - A movie with Geoff

*******

6:00AM - the next day - the two sweetest children in the world are AWAKE, but willing to climb in our bed and snuggle a bit before demanding breakfast.

I'll be your cheerful neighbor - who is enjoying a bountiful season's harvest from her chocolate bar tree. We have so much this year, Brad and I couldn't possibly eat it all, would you like some?

What a perfect day you've imagined - I hope you have a day very similar to that soon! : )

What a wonderful day your Fairy has granted! Just put it out to the Universe and one day soon, you will have that day. :)

Well, if I lived next door, I'd take your kids for the day for ya. My kids spend the occasional day at my parents and it's soooo relaxing to know that they're in safe hands....

Awww, you're so in love with your husband. That's great. You have a wonderful imagination and a great fairy. Wouldn't it be nice? I agree with Eva: please share?!

Lovely & inspiring photo by the way!

I googled "Rent-A-Wee-Fairy" but, alas, nothing came up. I want you to have a day of wee fairy-ness!

This is dreamy!
You described a perfect day.
Does Geoff know he is that much a part of your dream day?
